Dave my motor over-current condition turned out to be the motor brush assembly, not just the brushes!! I removed the motor and had a local Rhode Island company (Ace Armature) replace the brushes, bearings and brush holder assembly.


if your interested in a replacement motor drop Siebe an email address below.

Best of luck

Following up from a while back as I never solved this problem and it didn't appear to be the relay contacts. If I bypassed the relay (direct cable) the problem was still there. It seems like there's either something bad with the brushes (or is this brushless?) or with the windings. Is the best bet to contact Antal and/or look for a replacement motor?

I cleaned the relay contacts but it didnít help. I wonder if the motor is shot? Iím in New Zealand now and would appreciate any contacts to source a new one.

Hi Dave just curious if discovered the root cause of your W66 winch issue. I recently experienced the same symtons with my W66 and it turned out to be a worn brush assembly..

Regards,

Our relays are separate from the winch, accessed from a ceiling panel near the winch. As I recall, it is a black plastic box roughly 2X2x4 inches.  It is somewhat awkward to gain access to due to space limitations but easy to open and repair once it is in your hands. As I recall, the contacts could be rotated to provide fresh contact points, but don't hold me to that. JR

Is the realy separate from the winch motor assemble - meaning the switches are wired to the realys which have the high amperage cables?

This happened to us also. I disassembled the relay and cleaned up the contacts. It fixed our problem. JR

High amp draw and slow speed up for Antal 66 winch

We have dual Antal 66 primary winches on our H54. One seems to work normally and draws about 50 amps running. The other starts slowly then speeds up to normal in about 15 seconds, but draws over 100 amps. This happens whether or not the winch is engaged to the motor. Does this indicate windings going bad, an issue with the gear box, or something else entirely? Is this fixable without replacing the winch motor?
